Rant about overreactions on Tumblr
If you are smart enough to know that the media tries to brainwash people, then you MUST be smart and strong enough not to depict yourself as a victim who lays responsibility on what media stereotypes as perfect or beautiful, or even on people who post on Tumblr for your self-hate attacks, or triggered self destructive behaviors. People need to stop glorifying sadness and helplessness. Why investing time on editing b/w images of slitted wrists with an overlayed melancholic phrase full of self pity? I guarantee you that most if not all people with depression and self harm issues would never consider posting a picture of what they just have done to themselves. I talk from experience with friends who have been there. It IS valid to talk to people you trust or even to strangers on the internet in case you are not feeling well. But even that is very different from trying to prove everybody HOW DEPRESSED THEY ARE and try to come off as a warrior of sorrow even if they are doing little to nothing to help themselves. Because no one will save you, not even those drugs given so easily by psychiatrists even to cases which are not close to serious, but more like emotions out of proportion and control. The world is like this and people need to grow balls. No one should search for pity as a relief. You were born to be more than a list of diagnosed disorders exhibited in a Tumblr bio. Nobody should want to be recognized for the faulty chemicals in their brains or for their permanent state of sadness and lack of hope, goals and motivation; neither for their bloody skin or for their annoying wish of being treated better just because of being a female. Everybody who can actually read and understand these words is EQUALLY capable of making of their life whatever they wish, and the only one who can stop you from that is yourself.
